Excel Icon Set Color

Copper Contributor

Hi excel experts!  I've been asked to make an edit to the standard red/yellow/green circle icon set in conditional formatting.  They want a truer yellow vs. the standard gold.  Anybody know how I can change the color of an icon?

The icon sets are hard-coded. There is no easy way to change them.

See Create Your Own Excel Icon Set for an alternative.


Please do not call phone numbers mentioned in other replies - it's a scam.

thanks. I'll report that phone number reply. Trying to work through the custom icon set. I get lost quickly when lookups are involved.
